LUBBOCK, Texas — A Lubbock man was arrested Thursday and accused of sexually assaulting an underage relative, according to court documents.

Jose Angel Reyes, 41, was charged with sexual assault of a child and indecency with a child.

According to a police report, the victim came to police and said they had been sexually abused by Reyes since the age of 14. The victim could not remember how many times Reyes committed sexual abuse, but that it had been almost daily for four years.

The victim also told police that another relative had made a post on Facebook accusing Reyes of sexual abuse. According to court documents, the second victim said that, starting at age 9 or 10, Reyes molested them “at every opportunity,” until age 16.

The warrant quoted the second victim as saying, “The very last time that he molested me, I was in my grandparents kitchen, and … that was the last time I let myself be vulnerable to him.”  

Reyes was held in the Lubbock County Detention Center on a $225,000 bond.
